nodejs:14 security and bug fix update
Affected Channels: 
Asianux Server 8 for x86_64

Node.js is a software development platform for building fast and scalable network applications in the JavaScript programming language.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: nodejs (14.15.4).

Security Fix(es):

* nodejs-npm-user-validate: improper input validation when validating user emails leads to ReDoS (CVE-2020-7754)

* nodejs-y18n: prototype pollution vulnerability (CVE-2020-7774)

* nodejs-ini: prototype pollution via malicious INI file (CVE-2020-7788)

* nodejs: use-after-free in the TLS implementation (CVE-2020-8265)

* c-ares: ares_parse_{a,aaaa}_reply() insufficient naddrttls validation DoS (CVE-2020-8277)

* nodejs-ajv: prototype pollution via crafted JSON schema in ajv.validate function (CVE-2020-15366)

* nodejs: HTTP request smuggling via two copies of a header field in an http request (CVE-2020-8287)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.

Bug Fix(es):

* yarn install crashes with nodejs:14 on aarch64.

An issue was discovered in ajv.validate() in Ajv (aka Another JSON Schema Validator) 6.12.2. A carefully crafted JSON schema could be provided that allows execution of other code by prototype pollution. (While untrusted schemas are recommended against, the worst case of an untrusted schema should be a denial of service, not execution of code.)
This affects the package npm-user-validate before 1.0.1. The regex that validates user emails took exponentially longer to process long input strings beginning with @ characters.
This affects the package y18n before 3.2.2, 4.0.1 and 5.0.5. PoC by po6ix: const y18n = require('y18n')(); y18n.setLocale('__proto__'); y18n.updateLocale({polluted: true}); console.log(polluted); // true
This affects the package ini before 1.3.6. If an attacker submits a malicious INI file to an application that parses it with ini.parse, they will pollute the prototype on the application. This can be exploited further depending on the context.
Node.js versions before 10.23.1, 12.20.1, 14.15.4, 15.5.1 are vulnerable to a use-after-free bug in its TLS implementation. When writing to a TLS enabled socket, node::StreamBase::Write calls node::TLSWrap::DoWrite with a freshly allocated WriteWrap object as first argument. If the DoWrite method does not return an error, this object is passed back to the caller as part of a StreamWriteResult structure. This may be exploited to corrupt memory leading to a Denial of Service or potentially other exploits.
A Node.js application that allows an attacker to trigger a DNS request for a host of their choice could trigger a Denial of Service in versions < 15.2.1, < 14.15.1, and < 12.19.1 by getting the application to resolve a DNS record with a larger number of responses. This is fixed in 15.2.1, 14.15.1, and 12.19.1.
Node.js versions before 10.23.1, 12.20.1, 14.15.4, 15.5.1 allow two copies of a header field in an HTTP request (for example, two Transfer-Encoding header fields). In this case, Node.js identifies the first header field and ignores the second. This can lead to HTTP Request Smuggling.
